Exactly What Help?

This was from a piece at local6.com

Police in Orlando, Fla., are searching for the drivers of three vehicles who ran over a pedestrian early Monday and did not stop to help, according to Local 6 News.

Investigators said the victim was first hit by the driver of a silver Dodge Durango on Orange Blossom Trail near Silver Star Road at around midnight.

“The impact left the victim’s body in pieces,” Local 6’s Jacquie Sosa said.

While the man’s body was in the street, two more cars ran over the man and no one stopped to help.

Anyone with information concerning this incident is urged to call Crimeline at (800) 423-TIPS.

Certainly someone should have stopped and called the police but the question I have is, what do they mean by stopped to help. If the first impact left the body in “pieces” then there is not much help the drivers of the other vehicles could provide.

By the way, if you were in the Orlando area and have any information please call the tip line above.

    I am puzzled by the story, too. Not the best piece of journalism that I have read.

    Hope they catch the first dirt bag who hit the poor fellow. If he was in pieces, perhaps the other two vehicles did not know what they hit.

    There have been other stories in the news about drivers leaving the scene with victims attached to their cars. Tells me that society is steadily going down hill.
